Sweet Vintage Baby Things

A couple weeks ago, I had a campaign with Huggies so Mom and I were looking up baby stuff on Pinterest. I've just hired her as my Research Assistant and Creative Consultant and she did such a great job of finding fun vintage diaper things (like this 1950s diaper pail) that I thought I'd put together a fun round up for Pink Saturday!

This adorable box of Ivory Flakes sold on Etsy recently. It would be cute to decorate a laundry room with. Mom says, "Vintage Ivory Flakes Soap, 1960's. Clothes washed in this and line dried smelled soooooo wonderful!"

Betsy Wetsy was one of the most popular 'drink and wet' dolls of the Baby Boom era, originally issued by the Ideal Toy Company of New York in 1935. Says Mom, "I had one of these and I just loved her to the moon and back."

Aren't these diaper pins the cutest ever? I want some and I don't even cloth diaper!

Mom says, "Boiling diapers with baby on the table in 1943. We have come along way as far as (thoughts about) safety and all diaper types."

Look at this sweet diaper pail someone listed on eBay a few years ago. I want one!

Diaper bags in the '60s had to be gargantuan to fit in all those bulky cloth diapers, plastic pants, and...what else? Fill me in, readers!

The washer this woman is sitting at is not all that surprising to me---I've seen ones like it before. What is surprising to me is that she's sitting at it. Is this authentic? Something tells me no... Ha!

Here's a fun video featuring "tape on Pampers". Yikes!


  1. A great vintage baby presentation. You mom did a super jbs on all these finds. I can relate to a lot of them.

  2. My son, who is 26, had those cute nappy pins and I still have a few somewhere around the house.
